Since 2011, CURE Childhood Cancer has had a research fund named in honor of Dr. Carlos Alvarado, a dedicated pediatric oncologist who retired in 2009 after nearly three decades of service at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. Dr. Alvarado cared for children with cancer skillfully and compassionately, while also making incredible strides in the search for a cure through his research. The Carlos S. Alvarado Fund will continue to move his work forward by funding lifesaving research at the Aflac Cancer Center at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.
“Dr. Alvarado’s gentleness, compassion, and love for the children with cancer, including our son, were ever present. He was always there for Paul and our family.”
— John Yates
